O Envious DayBud Roach

Canadian tenor Bud Roach returns to the Midtown Concert Series with "O Envious Day", accompanying himself on the theorbo with songs and arias by John Wilson, Henry Lawes, Nicholas Lanier, Claudio Saracini, and Domenico Melli. Presented with projected translations and historical readings on themes of night, day, and, of course, love.

Bud Roach has been recognized internationally for his ground-breaking achievements in historical performance and the self-accompanied practice. Musica Omnia recordings of arias by Grandi, Sances, as well as sacred canzonettas from the Chiavenna Oratory, leading his ensemble Capella Intima, have met with unanimous critical praise.
